Ad-Aware Crashing My Laptop

6 posts in this topic

I have been using Adaware successfully for years! It's installed on my desktop (XP-Home SP2) and my laptop (XP-Pro SP2). A few days ago, the laptop began crashing and rebooting each time I tried to do a web update.

 

The desktop updates are working fine.

 

I removed and reinstalled Adaware on the laptop.

 

As soon as I tried to update the brand--new installation on my laptop.... BLUE SCREEN OF DEATH!

 

I assumed I had some strange infection. I reformatted and reinstalled windows on my laptop. The computer was now as clean as the driven snow. I did one update and scan. Everything was fine.

 

The next time I tried to update, I got blue screen of death!!!!!. When I tried to navigate to Lavasoft site, ANOTHER BLUE SCREEN OF DEATH!

 

I used Add/Remove and deleted the new installation. Thankfully I am able to get to Lavasoft website.

 

I only use Opera and Firefox browsers. Microsoft Defender, Pest Patrol, Spybot, and Spyware Blaster all show "0" on full scans. I don't know why my laptop suddenly can't use Adaware.

 

Can anyone shed light?

 

The dump was approximately....

 

"A problem has been detected. To prevent damange...etc.

Driver_IRAL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

Remove software....Disable BIOS memory options, caching or shadowing....

 

STOP:0X000000D1

(0X8240000,0X00000002,0X000000,0XF80D5A98)....

Hi,

Did you find anything the first scan, did you remove anything?

Do you have the lavasoft authenticity check installed?

The first and only scan found nothing. I've since removed Adaware. I have Pest Patrol, Defender, Spybot, and Spyware Blaster.

 

Pest Patrol did encounter wmplayer.exe in my Launch Applications, which I quarantined, but after I removed AdAware.

 

I am afraid to reload Adaware at this point. Any advice?

Solution found: contact Intel® Corporation to obtain the update

 

Problem description

 

Thank you for submitting an error report. The error was likely caused by:

 

Intel PRO/Wireless LAN 2200BG adapter software (w22n51.sys)

 

Solution

Thanks! I had a feeling it was the wireless....because I connected directly with an ethernet cable to my router and everything was fine...! I shall download the fix and let you know. It has been driving me crazy!
